How do I count work days only?

How do I count work days only?

How do I count work days only?

I am trying to count work days (Mon-Fri) between two dates, but the DAYSBTWN function counts all days. I know I had gotten help before from an expert... but I lost the info on how to do this (was several years ago). Any help would be truly appreciated. Thanks.


RE: How do I count work days only?

Here is a quick and dirty solution:

Create a calculated field as follows:


That will divide the number of days by seven to get the number of full weeks, and then multiply by five to get the number of workdays.  The problem is that it may be off by a day or two depending the number of days in a month, the start date and the end date.  If this is not acceptable you can elaborate on this.
